The Romanian Government has to pay material and moral damages worth EUR 4,500 to a Romanian citizen so that he withdraws the lawsuit filed against Romanian at the European Court for Human Rights (ECHR). The man complained he was fined by gendarmes after he attended a protest rally in front of the Parliament Palace.
The European magistrates have decided to close down the lawsuit, following an understanding reached by the Romanian with the Romanian Government, ziare.com reports.
On June 26, 2018 and July 16, 2018, the court received the statements of mutual agreement signed by the parties, by which the complainant has agreed to drop the charges against Romania (…) and to receive EUR 4,500 as material and moral damages, as well as expenditures, the ECHR decision reads.
The amount of money is to be paid in three-month time from the decision.
